Business schools and companies across the world are under critiscism for the attitudes, values and ethics of business leaders.

This seminar provides practical knowledge on how to develop globally responsible leaders and will enable participants to plan next steps in their own organisations, irrespective of whether they have well established programmes or are at an early stage in developing this agenda into their organization.

It is relevant for executives responsible for human resources and leadership development in companies, deans of executive education and MBA programmes, heads of centres for leadership, ethics and sustainability as well as anyone designing leadership development programmes at all levels.

The seminar will be led by Mark Drewell, Chief Executive of the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI) and Uwe Steinwender, Group Executive at Daimler.
